Oshoala In Fitness Race For Barcelona Champions League Final Against Wolfsburg

Africa women’s best player, Asisat Oshoala remains a big doubt for Barcelona’s UEFA Women’s Champions League final against Wolfsburg on Saturday (today).

Barcelona head coach Jonatan Giráldez named a 27-player group for the trip to the Netherlands, with Oshoala and Spanish-Nigerian wonderkid Vicky Lopez making the cut.

However, there are genuine concerns about the fitness of the Super Falcons striker, who is struggling to overcome a thigh injury she sustained in Barcelona’s final league game of the 2022-2023 season. 

The 28-year-old Nigerian has been training alone in the build up to today’s final.

The forward also didn’t partake in full training with her teammates on Friday raising further questions about her fitness for the game.

Oshoala is the competition’s joint- top scorer having netted five goals alongside her teammate, Aitana Bonmati.

The super falcons star has appeared in nine Champions League matches, scoring five goals including braces against Benfica and 
Rosengård. 

The Spanish side will be looking to win their second title when they take on the Germans at a sold-out PSV Stadium, in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
